Telesina is a 5 Card Stud Variant that uses a stripped deck. The deck runs from 7 to Ace and the players can use the Ace as a high or low card. Find out about Telesina Hand Rankings.
Telesina is played as a pot limit game meaning that players can only bet the same number of chips as there are in the pot.
Like No Limit Hold'em, the player with the best five card hand wins any pot that goes to showdown. Players use their own cards combined with the single community card to make their hand.
